Effortless Elegance from Edward Mongzar

Effortless Elegance from Edward Mongzar

I have worked with many brands and designers the last two and a half years. But Edward Mongzar is the one who definitely stood out. Why? Read the email from them below:

Effortless elegance from Edward Mongzar

“Our designer Edward has seen you wear lots of ethical pieces recently and when he found your blog and read about your story, he just fell in love with it! He really would love to send you a garment from his Spring / Summer ’17 collection! We really love your happy energy, your love of colors and your complete honesty, the stories you have shared about your life are really inspiring and Edward and I really believe that our brand is made for people like you! Your love for life really comes across well through your blog and YouTube and it’s great to learn in your blog about where your love of fashion began.”

Did you see? Fashion is meaningless without human connection and emotional bonding. Even before seeing any of their pieces, I already liked them a lot. πŸ˜‰

Then I did some research and afterwards I found I like this designer, Edward Mongzar, even more. Wonder why? Read his own quote below:

β€œI am not selling art, history or the future. I am just a designer trying to make the best out of my creative ability to make beautiful clothes”

I love an honest person, and I love how humble and practical he is. It kinda fits in with my current life philosophy too. I believe, for an adult, the best thing we can do is know who we are and be the best we can be. There is no need to dream of changing the world. Simply being the best of yourself is already making the world a better place.

Edward Mongzar started this ready-to-wear, handcrafted Luxury womenswear label back to 2015 in the UK. He has two specialties incorporated into his designs, one is “Marbling” and the another is Hand Woven Fabrics.

The top below is an example of the Marbling technique. Marbling has origins deep set in the days of the T’ang dynasty of China, spreading widely to Japan, India, Iran and Turkey via the Silk Road. Historically, marble dyeing has been exclusive to paper. With the growing interest in marbling on fabric, Edward Mongzar has successfully brought the mediums of marbling and luxury fashion to life, with marble dyeing on luxury fabrics.

This top is very well made of flowery silk with unique marbling patterns. The cold shoulder is so right now. It is for sure a one of a kind color pattern piece because there are no two pieces exactly the same due to the marbling process.

Now let’s take a look at this Hand Woven Fabric top below. This piece is created using the traditional handloom weaving technique of Nagaland, India. It takes days to create even a very small garment.

I really love the color of this top and it is another well made example. Did you see the shape of the sleeves? It is not super dramatic, but adds on some cute flair.

From both tops, I can tell that Edward is good at creating garments with simple silhouettes, yet they remain innovative. I do feel effortless elegance when I am wearing Edward Mongzar clothes. I am thinking I may take both of them to Paris next month when I go. πŸ˜‰

Happy Eyes, Happy Wallet – Reading Glasses from Readers.com

Happy Eyes, Happy Wallet – Reading Glasses from Readers.com

It was right after I turned 40 years old… I started to notice some changes in my body. One of them was my eyesight. I started getting blurred vision when doing minor activities and I was squinting a lot. My crow’s feet were more and more obvious around my eyes. I even got headaches more often. Later, my eye doctor confirmed that I had presbyopia. Really!?! I was quite upset because I didn’t feel like I was that old. My doctor told me that the average person to get presbyopia is 36 years old. This made me feel a little better at least. Maybe mine is not too bad after all. πŸ˜‰

I guess it doesn’t matter how much time and money we spend on our face and body, the aging of our eyesight is not that easy to prevent or to fight. The best way to look at it is I now get to wear a pair of stylish reading glasses to avoid more crow’s feet and headaches in the future.

I came across Readers.com and loved what I read from other customers. You should probably know, I always read reviews first and then decide if a website or store is worth my time to shop there. πŸ˜‰ Anyway, they have many, many styles and types of reading glasses. They offer “Free Shipping on U.S. Orders $30+” and “No-Hassle Returns for a full refund up to 90 days.” This sounded pretty good to me, so I got two pair of reading glasses from them.

The first one is The Laura. I love the perfect mix of retro and edge! I just can’t say no to red or the iconic cat eye shape. πŸ˜‰ So stylish, right? They are only $15.95. Later I noticed their slogan and it is “Happy eyes Happy wallet”. It is quite true.

The second pair I got is this cool and fancy looking The Marigold Bifocal Sun Reader. I have been going to a beach for vacation each spring. I noticed when I’m there I always wish I have a pair of sunglasses that can help me read. I also have a pool in my backyard, so I do spend quite a bit time on my chaise lounge working on my computer. Now with this pair of sunreaders, I can be very stylish and practical at the same time. πŸ™‚ This pair is only $22.95.

This website is pretty easy to use and the customer service is very good too. I didn’t know my prescription so I just scanned my latest eye exam and e-mailed it to them. They helped me pick the right lens. πŸ˜‰ When I was looking through Readers.com, I noticed they have some very unique offers. For example, you can order very flexible reading glasses if you are rough on your glasses. πŸ˜‰ Or Folding Reading Glasses for convenience. I was so excited to see that they even offer high power Makeup Reading Glasses. Makeup readers? You better believe it. These nifty readers are specifically designed to help apply makeup. Work on one eye, then simply slide the magnification over to the other eye when you’re ready to move on. Very interesting! I may have to check them out when my eyesight needs more help. πŸ˜‰
